2018 Great Britain 10 oz Silver Queen's Beast (Red Dragon) Coin .9999 Fine BU In Cap
As one of the newest series available on the bullion market, the Queen’s Beasts series is exclusively released by the Royal Mint and is inspired by hundreds of years of royal heraldry. This latest release in the ten coin series celebrates the Red Dragon of Wales. The dragon first became tied to Wales in 829 AD, when it was recorded in Historia Brittonum as being the battle standard for the legendary King Arthur.
The Queen’s Beasts series ties the modern-day back to the coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth in 1953. On this chilly day, the procession of the woman who would go on to become the world’s longest-reigning living monarch into Westminster Abbey was flanked by ten six-foot-tall statues lining the entrance. These were chosen as a link to her ancestry, as the 10 beasts are the same that have been worn on badges by the line of kings and queens preceding her. The Dragon of Wales follows the Lion of England and the Unicorn of Scotland which forms the Royal Arms of the United Kingdom.
